Industry heads said that while the climate was tough British boats, such as those built in East Anglian yards were doing well on a world stage.

Chief executive of Ipswich based Oyster, which makes many boats in Wroxham and a director of the show, David Tydeman, said: “British boat building is doing quite well. There is new investment and we are investing a lot of money.”

He said that a lot of money was being made through the export market.
